Before students hit the track, each vehicle will undergo a series of inspections to ensure it is safe to race. In addition to each school participating in the stock car competition, schools can also have fielded cars in the open car category, allowing them to custom build a vehicle. The vehicles compete in two heats. The 60-minute heats are held on a closed course to see who can run the most laps using only 1,000 Watt-hours of electricity.

Participants in the 2019 race included: Boerne, East Central, Edgewood, Floresville, Harlandale, Lytle, Northside, Palo Alto College, St. Phillips College, Somerset, South San, Southside, Southwest.  The 2022 Invitational is open to all academic institutions that participate in a STEM based curriculum.
